4:00pm
>> bret: finally tonight, the obama administration has been criticized lately for its lack of diversity within its staff. particularly its lack of women. the latest report has the level of intrigue and mystery to the latest lack of diversity reports. many of them using a certain recent photo. >> this photo that shows the president surrounded by all male advisors, although the white house says top aide valerie jarrett is hidden behind the men. [ laughter ] >> that's just valerie jarrett's style. here she is at the 2008 inauguration. here she is at tiananmen square. here she is with buzz buzz aldrn on the moon. she is like a living where's wall doe. here she is behind wall waldo.
4:01pm
please stay with us all weekend long for special coverage of the presidential inauguration. megyn kelly and i will be here. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. '. >> bill: tonight on "the fox report" americans still working to free americans in algeria. now we know one is dead. plus, what to make of the lance armstrong confession. >> did you ever take banned substances to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> >> the cyclist revealing his dark secrets. why did he agree to this interview in the first place? and what does he do now? this man won the lottery and wound up dead. investigators say somebody poisoned him and today they dug up his body. >> i don't even know what happened.
4:02pm
tonight, the evidence they are trying to find. plugs, robbers knock off a brinks truck and get away with the cash. the guard does not go down easily. >> i heard at least 15 to 18 shots. >> tonight, governments in the manhunt for the brinks bandits. i'm bill hemmer in tonight for shepard smith. one of the american hostage in algeria is dead. u.s. officials saying that he was from texas they have recovered his remains and november his family. sources tell fox news he died of a heart attack yesterday when algerian forces stormed the gas plant and tried to rescue the hostage. a bit earlier today the militants claim they were holding two americans at the facility in the sahara. and the state department confirming there were other u.s. hostage there. no word though tonight on their fate. the militants were also offering to swap two americans for two convicted terrorists
4:03pm
head here in the u.s. one of them the so-called blind sheikh convict haved of plotting to blow up landmarks here in new york city. investigators say he also has ties to the first world trade center bombing of 1993. "the fox report's" chief meteorologist jonathan hunt tonight live on the story in our new york newsroom. jonathan, the militants are giving more details on the hostage they claim to hold. what's happening? >> yeah. bill, through the this standoff. the militants have been communicating through an african news agency called ani. and tonight they told that agency that they still hold at that gas facility a total of 7 hostage. the nationality breakdown is this. three belgians. three americans. one japanese citizen and one from britain. meantime the standoff continues.
4:04pm
-- holding those hostage they say they still have. >> what about this offer to swap hostage for prisoners? >> this came from the leader of this group. he is not, we believe, actually at that gas facility. his name is mac tar bell mock tar. he is the one eyed algerian terrorist. he wants to get out of prison here. two terrorists who are being held in u.s. custody among them one of them omar abdel rackman the so-called blind sheikh who is serving a life sentence here for his role in the 1993 world trade center bombing. as for the u.s. reaction to that swap offer, it was pretty unequivocal, listen.
4:05pm
>> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> that means -- >> -- algeria? algeria does not negotiate with terrorists? >> i will say it again. the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> do you expect algeria to live up to the same motto? >> we do not negotiate with terrorists. we are obviously in consultations with the algerians. >> the algerian government has not been quick nor reliable with information through the this crisis, bill. but the latest from algerian government officials is that there are 12 dead as a result of this standoff. we should reiterate one of those confirmed by u.s. officials is an american. but we should also caution that given the conflicting information we have been getting through the this, those numbers on both counts, the total and the number of americans could yet change. bill? >> bill: jonathan hunt with that fox report tonight. also, we are hearing from some of the hostage who did make it out alive. we will go life to the pentagon in a moment coming up here on "the fox report."
4:06pm
cycling fans and officials now reacting to lance armstrong's blockbuster confession that he cheated for years to win. >> did you ever blood dope or use blood transfusions to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> did you ever use any other banned substances like testosterone? cortisone or human growth hormone? >> yes. >> well, the world anti-doping agency not too impressed with armstrong's confession. its president saying that armstrong's claim that doping was method to create a level playing field amounted to a convenient way of justifying fraud. and he says if armstrong was looking for redemption, did he not succeed. others had mixed feelings. >> i don't condone what he did. and it's a little late on the confessing. but i'm glad is finally coming out and doing it. >> i can't believe he denied it all that time. >> i don't care. he is not hurting me. he didn't hurt me by hurting,
4:07pm
racing. he didn't cost me anything. yeah, i mean, he is a fraud but on a bicycle. >> regardless of how you feel about his confession a key question remains now after all those years of lying and all those years of attacking his accusers, why come clean now? casey stegall with the news live now in armstrong's hometown tonight. that is austin, texas. why did he do this interview? how does he benefit, casey? >> bill, that's a good question. even lance armstrong himself could not answer why he chose this particular moment to come clean if you will. when oprah asked him last night. he said that he knows that it's probably too late. and he also said that he thought the situation was, quote, one big lie. as far as how he could really benefit from this what he could stand to benefit, i don't know. maybe clear his conscience. hoping to make another come back. i want you to listen how he almost tried to justify the doping. >> to keep on winning it means you had to keep on using
4:08pm
banned substances to do it? >> yes. be but and i'm not sure that this is an acceptable answer, but that's like saying why have to have air in our tires or we have to have wat our bottles. that was, in my view, part of the job. >> an estimated 4.5 million people tuned into the television version of this last night. bill, that is not even counting all of the people who watched it being streamed on oprah's web site. >> bill: quite a remarkable viewing for that you you are at his charity now live strong. what happens to that organization? >> well, clearly they are disappointed. and if you think about it they were mislead as well. they told us today they are going to try to move forward and continue to do the job that they have always tried to do since 1997 when this organization was started.
4:09pm
and that is raise money for those who have been affected by cancer, but they still cannot help from being upset. >> i am angered by the whole situation. i have my own arrange about lance. you know, i feel betrayed personally. the important thing is the journey and the admission. he has got a long road ahead. >> a long road ahead indeed. since this organization started it has raised more than $400 million for cancer, bill thank you casey, former new orleans mayor ray nagin facing corruption charges tonight. federal grand jury indicting him on 20 counts including bribery, fraud and money laundering. two businessmen pleading guilty to paying him bribes in exchange for work in new orleans. so far no naunce from mayor nagin. back in 2005 he blasted the federal government for what he
4:10pm
called their slow response to hurricane katrina. critics say he made mistakes as well. delaying evacuation order and not providing enough buses and not stocking the superdome with enough food and water ahead of that storm. man tie at a owe has some explaining to do and post would agree with that athletic director is demanding answers from him after telling the world that te'o was a victim of a hoax. why is the 787 dream liner not flying tonight? that's coming up on "the fox report." ♪
4:11pm

4:14pm
privacy. generally we don't want to be the one releasing information about students. we expect them to when it's appropriate to do it. >> well te'o claimed that somebody tricked him online and pretended to be his girlfriend. did it for years, in fact, then it appears he referred to her during interviews after he knew she did not exist. of course, te'o led the irish to the national title game some experts say he could be a first round pick in the upcoming nfl draft. at the moment we're left with many unanswered questions. mike tobin live tonight with more in our newsroom in chicago. mike, the stuff we do know again doesn't seem to add up now, does it? >> it doesn't add up when you look at the dates, bill. remember, december 6th this is the date that te'o and the university say he first learned there was got a phone call from the supposed dead girl's phone number. still, december the 8th. he did an interview with a web site in that interview he talked about losing his grandmother and his girlfriend to cancer. december the 9th he did an
4:15pm
interview that ran december the 10th. in that interview he he talked about playing after the fictitious girlfriend died. after the fictitious girl friend was buried. so two references. through it all one sports columnist said there was never any reason to doubt the stories coming from te'o. if there was one person in that program you would trust and take his word as gospel it would be manti te'o. we were floored. >> that same writer doesn't fault the university tore sitting on all of this information ahead of the big game, bill. >> bill: are people still standing by him? what are you hearing, mike? >> they were but that is fading. as we show you new pictures that emerged or one new picture that emerged of te'o today. a quick picture of him riding a golf cart down in florida. a lot of the players in south bend backed him for a while but now they are starting to
4:16pm
think his story stinks. >> so bad to believe him there are so many holes in the story right now, i don't know, i don't know what to think. >> i feel like he three years without really knowing a person, supposed to be your girlfriend. kind of hard to believe. >> i was suspicious. i thought it was all a publicity stunt. >> the fans also say they want te'o to step up, speak publicly and make sense of all of this. you heard the athletic director very egoy to hand the ball to te'o and his agent let them speak publicly about this whole thing. no plans for a press conference on the horizon, bill. >> bill: it is his call in time. thank you, mike. mike tobin tonight in chicago. thank you. boeing 787 dream liner will not fly until authorities are 1,000% sure it is safe. that from the transportation secretary ray la hood who last week said that he would have no reservations about flying on one and just a short time ago officials with boeing announcing it will stop delivering new 787's until its electrical problems are fixed. on wednesday of this week, the
4:17pm
f.a.a. ordered the planes grounded after yet another incident forced a deem liner to make an emergency landing in japan. secretary la hood says the concern centers on the lithium eye on batteries which he says seem to be causing all the problems. message posted as everybody inside the company knows nothing is more important to us than the safety of passengers, pilots and crew members who fly aboard boeing commercial and military aircraft, end quote. no one will look at your naked body in the airport again. got your attention. in a moment the t.s.a. finally getting ready to get rid of full body scanner. the brinks truck robbery caught on camera. they ambushed a guard but he
4:18pm
was not afraid to fight back. his story next.
4:19pm
4:20pm
4:21pm
>> bill: the fbi is hunting for some robbers who held up a brinks truck driver at gunpoint in the state of florida cameras captured all of it as it happened. >> the driver was walking into a credit union in sunrise when the robbers jumped out of a car guns drawn. >> approached by two males dressed very similar who laid him out on the ground and attempted to take his weapon. they were unsuccessful. >> bill: they gave up on trying to get his gun and made a run for it. that turned out to be a mistake. because the guard then pulled his pistol and opened fire. >> i heard at least 15 to 18 shots. >> bill: investigators found the get away car a frew blocks away riddled with bullet
4:22pm
holes. >> it appeared that the get away driver may have been hit. and it appears it could have been in the leg. it appears he hit his mark. >> no word tonight on how much money they got. brinks is offering $25,000 for information that leads to an arrest there in florida. passengers worried about their naked bodies showing up in airport security scans can breathe a bit easier tonight. the transportation safety administration confirming it is removing the body scanners that produced x-ray images. congress had ordered the t.s.a. to fix those scanners by the month of june. t.s.a. officials say the company that makes them could not change the software in time so they are pulling them from the airport. but body scanners will not go away entirely. airports will still use the kind that makes the more generic stick figure image. the decision is purely based on the deadline and not the controversy over so-called invasive imaging. trace gallagher with more live in our west coast news hub
4:23pm
tonight. howhow much did this cost us, trace. >> the feds first awarded the company 25-million-dollar contract bill. that was for 150 of those high tech image scanners. the naked scanner you were talking about. and then a year later they awarded them another 16-million-dollar contract for an additional 100 scanners. so, the total budget was for about $42 million but as the government often does, things ran a bit overbudget and with installation it cost about $90 million. but the head of t.s.a. says body scanners work. and he points to the underwear bomber case. listen. >> that individual could walk through our typical airport back through metal detectors 10 times, a thousand times and never set off that alarm. that's the reason we have the technology here in the u.s. the body scearns as they are referred to sometimes.
4:24pm
those able to pick up metallic as well as nonmetallic items. >> of the 250 rap scan only 176 were put into place. the good news is the rapi scan is going to come in and take all those scanners away and pick up the tab for that bill. >> what is the t.s.a. about making security and the process faster? will it? >> well, they say it's going to do that for a couple of reasons. one, because the scanners that will stay in place, you can actually view right there at the security area. the old full body naked scanners had to be viewed in a back room and somebody had to radio the agents to let people go. and without the invasive scanners, the belief is that fewer people will on for full body patdowns scabbers take 20 seconds. full body patdowns 80 seconds. the line should move a lot more quickly and if we can get our shoes on in a relatively
4:25pm
short amount of time we might have a little bit of time to spare. >> bill: meantime belts and shoes still come off. thank you, trace. trace gallagher on the west coast. the new york newspaper that posted the names and addresses of gun permit holders online has taken that information off the web. the publisher says it is not because of public pressure. the journal news which covers several counties north of new york city caused a lot of controversy by posting the information in the aftermath of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. among other things, critics said it would make gun owners a target. in a letter, the publisher says that the decision was not a concession but that, quote. with the passage of time the data will become outdated and i inaccurate. end quote. publisher also points out and points to a push from state lawmakers to limit access to gun permit information. in a recent fox news poll, more people said that publishing gun permit information poses a greater risk to homes without guns

disturbing attack in a subway station is now under arrest. police in philadelphia say the suspect approached a woman tuesday afternoon to ask for a light then began hitting her. surveillance video it's disturbing too. shows him dragging her across the platform, tossing her on to the tracks below. police say the woman made it to safety with just some bumps and bruises. investigators caught the suspect two days later using his distinctive jacket to i.d. him. police say they did not warn the public he was on the loose because that jacket was their best lead and he might have ditched it. they say he was wearing that jacket and carrying the victim's cell phone when they arrested him. he faces assault and robbery charges in philadelphia. i'm bill hemmer in tonight for shepard smith. this is "the fox report." one american is dead. others are still hostage. at a bp gas facility in algeria, that's what u.s. officials are saying tonight. algerian forces launched a rescue operation yesterday but we have been getting con licking reports about how many
4:31pm
hostage survive that a bit earlier today algerian television reported almost 100 were tree but close to 3 dozen still inside the complex and not yet accounted for. jennifer griffin live at the pentagon for us again tonight. what you can tell us about the americans who were at that complex, jennifer? >> good evening, bill. we have confirmed with u.s.s. officials that the american who died at the bp complex is frederick of texas. he died of an apparent heart attack when the algerians attempted their rescue. those hostage who were released as a result of the algerian army swift attempt at a rescue, which surprised and even angered some u.s. and british officials praise the algerian military. >> i think they did a fantastic job. i was very impressed with the algerian army. >> i won't feel 100% happy until i'm back in the u.k. >> mark cobb, we understand has also escaped. he escaped with some of his algerian staff. he is safe tonight, bill.
4:32pm
>> bill: what is the u.s. government doing to try and help here, jennifer? >> the u.s. government sent a c 130 and c-17 military transport plane to algeria. they took off and were allowed to evacuate some of the wounded. at least a dozen wounded were on board that first flight which left algeria hours ago. we understand that secretary clinton though has offered to the algerians to some counter terrorism help but the algerians continue to reject that help. >> let's not forget this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. >> terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge not in algeria, not in north africa
4:33pm
not anywhere. secretary clinton urged algerians to try to preserve the lives of all those left at the bp complex tonight. bill? >> bill: jennifer griffin at the pentagon with that fox report tonight. thank you. americans said to be evenly split about how president obama is doing as he heads into his second term. a new fox poll shows that his approval and disapproval ratings are exactly the same. 47 to 47%. you can see though that's a drop of nearly 20 froints his aroofl rating 4 years ago. most americans are satisfied getting an idea what we can expect to hear from the president when he speaks to america. ed henry is at the white house tonight. you have been talking to people what you have been hearing about the theme of the speech. >> talking to some the president's top aids saying he has already been through a few drafts of this speech. he has his fingerprints all
4:34pm
over it big moment for him. the big theme i'm hearing is coming together on some of the big issues that have divided both parties obviously. but also that he is going to it have a call to action the american people to stay engaged in the political process and pressure congress to make sure all sides come together on some of these big issues. and fitting into that we are learning tonight that the president's campaign masena, stefanie cutter. some of the top advisories are going to keep that campaign team together and they are forming this sort of outside nonprofit group to pressure congress on some of the big issues of the day. a senior advisor of the inaugural committee tells fox tonight that they believe this is is going to pay big dividends. >> take a listen. >> you will seat strength of the campaign organization turn over into new issue advocacy organization and put their muscle behind passing comprehensive immigration reform. passing responsible gun safety measures. >> now, republicans tonight are saying though that the
4:35pm
president's team has to be careful if they use campaign tactics and try to pressure, say, more moderate democrats like joe manchin in west virginia on issues like gun control that could back fire in a red state like west virginia where he is from. there is a fine balance here, bill. >> that will be interesting to watch. back to monday though. will he get into specifics about, say, immigration or even guns, ed? >> no. aids say that he wants to make this a big picture speech. and sort of it's going to be a bicend to the state of the union address that's coming next month. just as he did last year, he will lay out a lot of policy prescriptions. that's where we think he will fill in a lot of details. we heard certainly a lot of details on what he wants for guns, for example. he will have to talk a lot more in the state of the union about deficit control. we have this new fox poll out tonight to. people are upset about fiscal cliff deal. when asked if their paycheck is smaller this year because of more taxfuls being taken out 60% say yes 25% say no.
4:36pm
he is going to have to talk about more deficit reduction. they will do a will little partying this weekend they real lives it's right back to work, bill. >> word of a solution to prevent the united states from defaultingen its debt. the house majority leader eric cantor saying that lawmakers will vote next week on a short-term plan to let the government borrow more money effectively raising the debt ceiling. the deal not all worked out just yet. but apparently it this will not require the spending cuts that house republicans had wanted. just released fox news poll finds that 69% favor raising the debt limit only if there are major spending cuts involved. and 23% say it's reckless not to raise it regardless. the poll also shows more than 8 in 10 think government spending is out of control. only 11% believes it's being managed carefully.
4:37pm
mike immanuel tracking developments on the hill tonight. what's behind this house republican plan. >> bill, a lot of g.o.p. frustration has been based on the fact the senate has not passed a budget. so republicans are trying to force it house speaker john boehner told house members, quote: before there is any long-term debt alowe time for a budget to get done. >> he our hope is to pass something very early so the senate can take action as well. i wouldn't put any jeopardizing of the economy there. shows that it is a very rational, put us on a better path and i would think all the american public could support it in the senate as well. >> the house is also suggesting a policy of no budget, no pay. if lawmakers fail to do their job, the american people shouldn't pay them. bill? >> bill: what do democrats say about all of this, mike?
4:38pm
>> they seemed to welcome the idea, the republicans sound willing to extend the debt ceiling. a spokesman for majority leader harry reid says if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase to avoid default and allow the white house to to meet its existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. they don't want the drama. >> debt ceiling in a manner that causes no concern to the economy and to global markets, that does not in any way suggest that washington is about to, you know, engage in another process that results in a self-inflicted wound to the economy. >> this afternoon, carney calls on congress to pass an extension of the borrowing limit without delay. bill? >> bill: get ready for another battle. thanks, mike. mike immanuel from washington tonight.
4:39pm
top story as we go around the world tonight in 80 seconds. >> china, had happened after a cargo ship ran aground on some rocks and sprang a leak. the crew reportedly trapped for seven hours in stiff winds and wonderful waives. the helicopter team pulled all four people on board to safety in just 35 minutes. germany. we're getting our first look inside the elab bore brat tunnel thieves apparently used to pull off a bank robbery in berlin on monday. police say it must have taken weeks or months to dig the 150-foot long tunnel which led into the safe deposit room. the gang set the place on fire before getting away with the haul. cops have released a sketch of one suspect. lithuania. a one of a kind life like portrait photo of the artist vincent van go. a photographer created it with the help of a bearded friend. he says his reminded him of van go.
